Blueberry Cake Protein Shake and A Winter Park Boat Tour
Posted Oct 10 2012 8:08pm
This morning I actually got up and went for a run. It started off a bit rough, but ended strong. Not such a bad run and it felt good to get it out of the way.
When I got back, I mixed up this UNBELIEVABLE master piece. It tasted like Blueberry Cake. Legit. I couldn’t get enough of it.
1 Frozen Banana
1 Cup Frozen Blueberries
1 Scoop Cake Batter Protein Powder
1/2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
3/4 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
That simple. Just put it in a blender and blend until smooth. I am beginning to absolutely love this cake batter protein powder because I feel like the options are endless with it. You can really turn anything into a sweet cake flavored treat and mold it into what ever kind of cake flavor tickles your fancy.
Anyways, the rest of the day was just work work work. When I got back, Brent and I went on a fun little tour! Not too crazy or anything but entertaining. It was the Winter Park Boat Tour. It leaves just about 2 blocks away from my house and is 12 bucks a person. You just ride a cute little boat around the lakes in Winter Park and learn all about the history of the area.
To be honest, being from Boston, I didn’t think that Orlando had such a rich little history, but it turns out Winter Park is more influenced by the north than I thought!
We run past these little canals connecting the lakes and it’s really just so pretty.
Some of the little interesting facts about Winter Park:
A whole bunch of land was purchased by a man who lived in New England. He named it Winter Park in hopes of drawing more northerners to the area for the summers.
A few years later, the northerners in the area decided they needed to build a school and Mr Rollins donated 50,000 dollars of the 100,000 needed to start the school, and it was named Rollins College.
Mr Cornell was actually a huge contributor to the school and has several buildings named after him. This is the same Cornell that start Cornell University in upstate NY.
Rollins is the only university in Florida to have a Noble Prize winner alumni.
My favorite fact of the ENTIRE ride centered around this house:
This was the first Mr Roger’s Neighborhood! THE MR ROGERS attended Rollins college and was assigned a dorm. But he couldn’t fit his grand piano in the room so his parent found a room in this house for him to rent out. Definitely room for his piano in here.
I LOVED Mr Rogers as a kid! I always think of my brother when I think of that show. It was definitely a fav of his too.
WIth that, I leave you with a good night!
What was your favorite show as a kid?
There are so many goodies that we forget. Hey Dude. Pete and Pete. Angry Beavers. Ren and Stimpy. I really think that cartoons of today have NOTHING on what we had back then.
